Cherry Fruit Leather
Preheat oven to 170°F. Prepare two baking sheets with silicone baking mats.
Remove stems and pits from cherries. If you don't have a cherry pitter, I highly recommend getting one. They make quick work of prepping cherries.
Place cherries and water in a large saucepan. Bring to a low boil, stirring and cooking until all cherries have broken down.
Transfer to a blender (a food processor or hand blender may also be used). Blend until completely smooth. Return to pan. Add sugar and cook until thickened, roughly 10 minutes.
Divide mixture between prepared baking sheets. Use an offset spatula to spread out the cherry mixture as evenly as possible.
Bake in oven, rotating pans every hour for 5 hours or until just slightly tacky.
Place a sheet of parchment and cutting board onto of fruit leather. Flip pan, removing pan and silicone baking sheet.
Cut into long strips, tape or tie off to secure. Store in an airtight container.
